yes it has, in both cases : proof again that you don't understand
enough to comprehend why your question is irrelevant, and that you
can't understand the answer as such.

you can't compare something from so many years ago to each other and
then EXTRAPOLATE the results to NOW.

It would be like comparing a 1965 Mustang to a 1965 Corvette and then
coming to the conclusion that you could EXTRAPLATE those results to
compare the 2005 models. Just completely lacking in any understanding
of scientific theory.
